Authorization in modern applications is becoming increasingly complex, particularly when it comes to managing access to resources at the individual user and group levels. OAuth has become a widely-used standard for granting access to resources on behalf of a user, but it is not well-suited for these more nuanced use cases. In this talk, we will explore the confusion surrounding the use of OAuth for user and group-focused authorization in applications. We will discuss the standard meaning of authorization in OAuth, which is to grant access for an application to call APIs on behalf of the user, and how misusing OAuth for this purpose can lead to bad architecture and bloated JWT tokens. We will also introduce alternative standards like UMA (User-Managed Access) and GNAP (Group-Based Nested Access Protocol) as potential solutions for user and group-controlled resource delegation. These standards provide a more fine-grained and dynamic approach to access control and can be integrated with policies created by a PBAC (Policy-Based Access Control) server for a more comprehensive solution. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the limitations of OAuth for user and group-focused authorization, and with a clear understanding of the potential of UMA and GNAP as solutions for these use cases.
